I have even cleaned and waxed my chassis, drive shaft and oil pans one Saturday just because everything else had been cleaned and waxed already the previous weeks.
That's how some of my friends do it. In fact, it's probably a better way because you can take more time on each section and end with an overall better result. This is specially good for daily drivers and cars that you are not actually showing (at a car show for example).
But if you are attending a show, which is what the techniques I wrote about in the article are mostly based on, then you have to do it all at once. Or you have to be able to not drive the car for 2 weeks while you work on it, so that you can do it all in parts without getting it dirty again before you are done.

Haha. I'll hold you to that. I'm looking forward to detailing a Lambo or a Ferrari soon.
